Hello everyone in Ogallala Commons, so as you all know I have been interning at the Night Owl/ Ghost Horse Gallery here and the wonderful city of Silverton. My blog today will be over the two of the 12 Key Assets of Commonwealth. My asset is of Wildlife and the Natural World and Education. Everyday we usually have someone new come in to the shop, so we tell them why Rowdy the owner wanted to open up the Night Owl and why Tammy our Sculptor of the Night Owl does what she does. We also get show off Annie and Oakley everyday. So for those who don’t know “woo” they are those are our beautiful Great Horned Owl and Eagle Owl that we have in the barn in the back of the Night Owl/ Ghost Horse Gallery. They are very cute sometimes and Annie loves to talk to anyone she see checking her out. As far as everything in the Night Owl we have a lot more Key Assets around town like our local Library and the courthouse. Briscoe is also having their annual County Celebration and Rodeo this weekend so we get to par-take in a ton of history around this time of year. Not only because of the celebration, but also because of the people who come back home for Class reunions or just in general visiting home for a little while. It is always fun for us teenagers to see some relatives and hear about what used to be here or what they used to do. Sorry let me get back to talking about Oakley and Annie they are very smart and kind when they aren’t in a bad mood. I like Annie a lot but she isn’t to fawned of me. So what type of bird Annie is, she is a Eagle Owl and is only three months old and is already full grown. I will elaborate on what she is. “The American horned owls and the Old World eagle-owls make up the genus Bubo, at least as traditionally described. The genus name Bubo is Latin for the Eurasian eagle-owl. This genus, depending on definition, contains about one or two dozen species of typical owls and is found in many parts of the world,” here is a brief explanation on what type of birds Annie and Oakley are. Like I said they are great birds and I love working with them. I also love showing them to the little kids that come in, because they are so amazed along with the adults.
